Exceptional

5.0 5 months ago

Comments: We have a much better inventory position largely due to using Smart IP&O. Our inventories are better aligned with the customer demand and timing of the demand. We are able to better identify trends and pick up on changes in a more effective manner by using Smart IP&O. We are also able to provide the leadership team and our factory partners with projections regarding our anticipated demand. In addition, our inventory turns have increased. Smart has been very valuable in our S&OP processes and has made a positive difference in our inventories.

Pros:

Smart IP&O is user friendly, easy to learn, and navigate. It's ability to leverage various mathematical forecasting techniques is one of my favorite attributes. It is a great help in our capability to respond to unplanned demand changes, without creating obsolescence.

Cons:

Smart IP&O does not have the functionality to perform an ABC stratification. This feature would be useful to our business segments and a time saver for us.

Alternatives Considered: Logility Platform, Insight Supplychain Application, Demand Solutions, Forecast Pro and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne

Reasons for Choosing Smart IP&O: We desired a tool that was less challenging to use while maintaining or increasing effectivity.

Switched From: Logility Platform

Reasons for Switching to Smart IP&O: Smart IP&O introduced us to an extremely knowledgeable, customer centric team along with a terrific product that we could use to forecast our business with ease. The team listened to every concern and actively worked to get us what we wanted and where we needed to be.

Automate Demand Planing and eliminate spreadsheets

4.0 4 months ago

Comments: Our experience has been very positive. The team at SMART is great to work with and provide quick support when needed.

Pros:

The tight integration with our Epicor ERP\Kinetic software. Without a solution to generate demand for our high mix - low volume products we would be in the dark. This tool replaces a bunch of spreadsheets that where never populate with live data.

Cons:

The cost is a bit high for our size company. There are many features we do not use. This product is like any feature rich product it takes ownership and dedication to fully utilize.

Alternatives Considered: Forecast Pro

Reasons for Switching to Smart IP&O: A few reasons we chose SMART:- Cloud-Based- Integration with Epicor ERP\Kinetic- Feature and superior forecast modeling

Comments: Good so far!

Pros:

The software UI is effortless and easy to navigate.

Cons:

Not necessarily a con, but initially it does take a while to customize the settings to your business operational goals. However, the learning curve is not that steep.

Cutting Edge Forecasting and Inventory Optimization Software

5.0 6 months ago

Comments: Moving from excel to Smart has taken our forecasting to another level. It has saved us loads of time from updating excel spreadsheets each month, which were getting out of control. We are much more confident in the forecasts we are using and the purchase orders we are placing. We have also been able to react much quicker to the major supply chain and demand planning challenges over the past few years.

Pros:

Smart has really powerful features and functionality for both forecasting and inventory optimization that other software packages we considered didn't have. The software is reasonably priced for what it does, which made it affordable for us and a great value. Smart's ability to load and compare multiple forecasts has worked really well for us.

Cons:

Support is very good but would like more resources for self-help and to leverage more of the features and functionality.
